Almost Lights Out: See NASA’s InSight Mars Lander’s Final Selfie

Coverage: 4 sources
NASA's InSight Mars lander took its final selfie on April 24, 2022, the 1,211th Martian day, or sol, of the mission. The lander is covered with far more dust than it was in its first selfie, taken in December 2018, not long after landing. The team will soon put the lander's robotic arm in its resting position for the last time in May 2022.See the Story

NASA Snaps Photos of Underwater 'Sharkcano' Erupting

Coverage: 4 sources
NASA's Operational Land Imager-2, located aboard the Landsat 9 satellite, took striking snapshots of the submarine volcano, called Kavachi, erupting earlier this month. The volcano is located about 15 miles south of Vangunu Island, part of the Solomon Islands east of Papua New Guinea. It earned its nickname after a 2015 expedition found two species of sharks, along with active microbial communities, living within the volcano's crater.See the Story

NASA-supported solar sail could take science to new heights

67% Center coverage: 3 sources
Diffractive solar sails could enable missions to hard-to-reach places, like orbits over the Sun's poles. Solar sails use the pressure exerted by sunlight to propel a craft through space. Diffractive lightsails would use small gratings embedded in thin films to take advantage of a property of light called diffraction.See the Story

Longer breastfeeding duration associated with improved cognitive scores in children

100% Center coverage: 3 sources
Breastfeeding duration is associated with improved cognitive scores at ages 5 through 14, even after controlling for socioeconomic position and maternal cognitive ability, according to a new study published this week in the open-access journal PLOS ONE by Reneé Pereyra-Elías, Maria Quigley and Claire Carson of the University of Oxford, U.K.See the Story

MIT Researchers Identify Brain Circuit in the Thalamus That Helps Us Hold Information in Mind

100% Center coverage: 1 sources
MIT researchers have found that neurons of the anteroventral thalamus play a critical role in spatial working memory. This brain circuit, which weakens with age, could offer a target to help prevent age-related decline in spatial memory. According to the researchers, this region might be a good target for treatments that could help reverse memory loss in elderly individuals.See the Story
